We are now looking for un-produced scripts to develop and produce in 2020. If you have a script and would like to partner with us, please send an expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘BNW SCRIPT SUBMISSION 2020’ and attach the script in its current form. All shows that are produced through BNW go through a script development process with the writer, so your script should be a complete draft, but we are happy for it to be an in-progress work.
Plays of any topic and style are welcome.
We look forward to reading your works!
We accept submissions of new works of any form or genre throughout the year, but will provide deadlines to be considered for a particular performance slot. Your script must be finished but open to being workshopped in the process detailed below.
Prior to casting, BNW will host 8 Development sessions over 2 months, which will include the writer, director and a selection of our Resident Developers (one per character). This is a chance for the script to be extensively analyzed, workshopped and edited in a collaborative environment, with a focus on the core plot, themes, and characters. The whole team takes an active part in this process, but final creative control rests with the writer. Following this, the script is finalised and auditions are held for the rehearsal process.
The writer retains full ownership of the finished play after production.
If you’re a writer and you like the sound of what we do, send an expression of interest to email@example.com or drop us a line below, letting us know which of the above options is most fitting for you. If you are unsure or want further details, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to have a chat with you about your work.
